I've made an effort in the first hour of this show to stay away from jangling guitars and rhythmic drum beats. Consequently the first third of this show consists of a lot of instrumental pieces from film soundtracks. The second hour commences with a cover of "Free Falling", then moves on to "Falling Down", followed by "Falling Up". It then progresses on with some of the usual suspects. The third and final hour continues the meandering, with a few selections never... Topics: EWL Show, The El Wayno Loco Show, Meandering Around, Show 122, February 2 2013
We had "Dames' Names" so it's only fair that we turn the table and play a collection of songs that feature nom des hombres in their titles.

In which El Wayno tried valiantly to get local yokels to ring in and pledge financial support to a community radio station no one listens to or is aware of - the concept of this show was to play as many versions of "Your Song" as possible until someone phoned in a pledge. No one called. Finally, some goofball at the station rang in just to get El Wayno Loco to stop playing "Your Song". A whopping $20.00 pledge ended the madness.

This show falls on a sad day in music history, and although I don't care for shows that take place on someone's "death day", at the same time I've never had my show fall on such a day.
